San Jose, CA—Adobe completed its acquisition of privately held Fotolia, a leading marketplace for stock content. According to Adobe, the acquisition “cements Creative Cloud’s role as a vibrant market for creatives to buy and sell assets and services as well as showcase their talent to a worldwide audience.”
Work is now beginning on integrating Fotolia into Adobe Creative Cloud. This will provide current and future Creative Cloud members with the ability to access and purchase over 35 million images and videos, to simplify and accelerate the design process. Adobe also plans to continue to operate Fotolia as a stand-alone stock service, accessible to anyone.
Founded in 2004, with offices in New York, Paris and Berlin, Fotolia currently operates in 23 countries and has websites in 14 languages.
“We’re now hard at work to radically simplify the buying and selling of stock content,” said David Wadhwani, senior vice president, Digital Media, Adobe. “Fotolia is helping Creative Cloud become the marketplace for creatives to buy and sell high-impact assets, find talent and promote their work in front of an influential global community.”
With more than 3.4 million members, Adobe Creative Cloud features desktop tools, complementary mobile apps, training content, creative assets and services, and access to a dynamic community. adobe.com
